Miksu (5027) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - DEC 28, 2007
0.25 l bottle. Hazy golden color with persistent head. Exotic fruits and spices in the aroma with notes of coriander, pepper, orange, pineapple, grapefruit, berries, herbs and solvent. Bready, fruity and spicy flavor with lemon, grapefruit, pineapple, coriander and pepper.

DruncanVeasey (7712) - NUNEATON, TOP, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2007
Pale haze, spritz and black flecks of spice. Peppery aroma with a dab of vinegar. Silky on the palate with a lemon rind juiciness and sneaking spruce. Dryish, unspicy wit with a hint of hop bitterness.

MartinT (8619) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 10, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2013 My Bottom Line:
Minty hops, bubblegum esters and citrusy acidity pervade this prickly and effervescent Witbier.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy slice of foam sits atop the hazy whitish yellow.
-The sturdy body is able to withstand the forceful effervescence.
-Spices are intelligently integrated and make you wonder if the yeast and hops are responsible for their contribution to the flavor profile.
-This textbook Witbier is beyond reproach, imho, and it could thrive many more months past this already-reached "best before" date.
-A touch of doughy yeast recalls bread at times.
-The lactic acidity is a nice touch.

Bottles. Also as Forêt Blanche.

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 19, 2007
Bottle. Nice unfiltered yeast nose, apple and pear sweet aromas. Cloudy dark yellow, unattractive color with active carbonation. Sour apple flavor, lots of pear as well. Not complex but not bad. Crisp and refreshing palate.

Svesse (6967) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 11, 2007
(Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm) Golden yellow colour, slightly hazy. Huge, but brief white head. Fruity, tart, spicy nose with notes of coriander and clove. Fruity, tart taste with green apples, plums, spices and that distinct earthy, spicy Dupont hop character. Drier, more tart and more hoppy than most belgian witbiers. Actually more Dupont character than wit character (which suits me very nicely). Nice and spicy beer.

yngwie (15569) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 29, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2011 Bottle, 25cl. Golden body with some floaties. White head. Citrusy nose with some spicy hops and yeast notes. A bit citrusy maybe. Citrus, spice, pepper and some yeast in the flavor. Medium body. Citrus, spices and hops in the finish. Boring nose, nice flavor and too small bottle. 070707

SHIG (3983) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - JUL 29, 2007
Bottle: Poured a hazy yellow with sediment, the head was a thick white cream. Aroma is a citrus orange peel, hints of spice also could be smelled. Flavor is a spicy malt with suttle tastes of the citrus to break up the mediocre taste.

FatPhil (11008) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 13, 2007
250ml bottle (Poirotti, Helsinki) Darkish wheat beer, aroma to the style. Tastes like a very full-bodied wheat, fairly malty. Very pleasant, a good wheat beer.
